they have been a pioneer and public broadcasting. they support the educational mission of the san francisco unified school district and creating opportunities for student learning. i am urging the board to declare -- and i would like to let the clerk no that this resolution should come back at our meeting on september 6th after we come back from recess. >> i wanted to take the time to say a few words about -- when i learned about his passing, it was very shocking and i think that everything has been said it terms of what he
7:32 pm
brought to his work. from my own experience in this line of work, you get to know a number of individuals and a number of issues and when it came to issues involving tenants and the rights of tenants, you are not going to find someone more thoughtful, more knowledgeable or insightful about the issue of the rights of tenants and the concerns of the tenants then -- what is remarkable about him is the very quiet and yet the very affective way in which he advocated. his loss is a huge loss for tenants in san francisco. also tenants in immigrant
7:33 pm
communities have lost one of the most effective advocates they have ever had. this is a tragic loss and i just want to say that he was a really remarkable individual and he will be dearly missed by the entire san francisco community. i would like to join supervisor mar's comments. this is a very important institution. they have played a very important role not only with respect to education and also informing the entire city and county of san francisco on so many different issues. >> thank you, supervisors. >> i would like to echo the comments that were made about -- he is someone who helped to educate me and i think many of
7:34 pm
us on tenants issues and really helped to insure that the san franciscans who are being threatened can continue to live here. >> i was going to make this a request. i think that you said it quite eloquently. >> mr. president, that includes roll-call for introductions. >> why don't we go to general public comment. >> the next item is 74 the public to address the board for up to two minutes.

7:41 pm
corruption harms the entire society. the supreme court justice said that sunlight is said to be the best disinfectant. the problem is true today as it was then. how is it possible to protect the democracy? the violations come the diversion of private money to influence peddling, and the diversion of funds depends on each other. what we have seen is that the public gets a minuscule fraction of what was promised because money buys freedom from accountability. the public-private partnership was responsible for so many disasters in our public library have no agreement that has been exposed to scrutiny.
7:42 pm
they are allowed to sell the naming rights to scores of city properties with no consideration whether the benefit of the public is even equal to the cost of public resources. can you imagine the licensee in and naming rights in any other institution on the basis that some unknown some might be given to the public? what you call a person that calls -- has no feeling for anyone and has no respect for society as a whole? the answer is philanthropist. the private philanthropy buys influence for pennies. the allies cost more than money. lost allies cost more than the money. -- the livees cost more money than

7:44 pm
behind crus -- christ to suffer. two times, verses 44 and 46. it uses what it to the fact that there was prophecies. they were written down. we're talking 1500 years before hand. beyond his prophecy they had was 400 years old and jesus pointed to these prophecies. it is a great mystery. they're not stupid, they're blind. this is the same way with the gentiles. i'm a gentile, most of us are gentiles. we were never given the scriptures. the jews were given the scriptures. this was a very powerful argument.
7:45 pm

cooperate with people on making the flagpoles, the rainbow flag, and occasionally flying a new york state flag. they are not cooperating with us. and all but it is ok the public property has been handed to an organization. we are talking about harvey milk plaza. i assured that that symbolism around the world is a beacon of hope, a peaking of tolerance for gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgendered people. right now, because of --, nothing happened in the castro in solidarity with new york this weekend. shame.

auden's and a situation about the local homeless coordinating board. we have been reading about the people from the state prisons coming to san francisco and needing housing. of course, they are in meeting housing before that. then we hear about the veterans coming back. how will that affect the health and longevity and the burden on the health department and social services in other regards? we find the situation of the number one cause for the premature death of males is smoking. we find to
